Latin pop sensation Maluma has set the record straight after rumors surfaced linking him and reality star Kim Kardashian romantically. Read on to know the pair's real score.
Maluma, born Juan Luis Londoño Arias, is one of the most successful Latin pop acts in recent years. He became a household name owing to a number of hits, including "Chantaje" with Shakira and "Medellín" with Madonna.
With his growing fame and fortune, it is not surprising to come across reports about the 27-year-old Colombian singer and songwriter becoming linked to A-list celebrities. Recently, rumors swirled about him and Kim Kardashian getting romantic.

"We don't talk that often, but yeah, we are good friends, and we always wish the best for each other."
The "Corazón" hitmaker speculated that Kardashian's recent filing of divorce from music icon Kanye West may have partly sparked the rumors. However, he stressed that he and the makeup mogul are friends, and not more than that.

Maluma shared he first met the Skims founder at a Dior fashion show in Miami in December 2019. The 40-year-old TV personality attended the fashion event with her sister, Kourtney.
The Latino pop star and Kardashian first caused an online stir after they were spotted attending a party at The Good Times Hotel. A source reportedly said both had friendly interaction.
Amid the rumors, the Colombian singer is reportedly happy being single. However, he confessed to having a crush on Kardashian's half-sister and model Kendall Jenner.
Kardashian had also addressed the romance rumors with Maluma previously. She said she only met the Grammy-nominee a few times and described the artist as a nice guy.
Earlier, rumors also swirled about the reality star dating CNN star and lawyer Van Jones. Shutting down the speculations, Kardashian said the news host has been her longtime friend and that he was grateful for the rumor because it led him to have several dates.
According to a source, the mom of four worries that no one might want to date her at the moment because of her controversial relationship with her estranged husband.
She expressed openness to dating a non-celebrity as she continues to look for an understanding partner. With regards to her relationship with West, Kardashian said the rapper will always be her family.
